Straighten up and fly right!
This chap is from the 2009 Doctor Who Special 'Planet of the Dead' and he's a Tritovore, or as we know them a guy in a boiler suit with a fly head. I actually like these aliens as they remind me very much of earlier 'classic' Who style villains or monsters and the limitations faced by designers to come up with something convincing. They are obviously very well done and have a classic horror feel and look to them, well until they are revealed as being on the 'good guy' side of the story and then they just sort of hop about watching the Doctor for a bit. Still they looked good for a man in a boiler suit.
